CDNetworks Expands Global Cloud Acceleration with Additional PoPs in South America, the Middle East, and Asia


CDNetworks expands Dynamic Cloud Acceleration, delivering dynamic website content and cloud applications, such as Sharepoint and Drupal from around the world to the fastest growing internet populations in BRICI countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and Indonesia) and now in Chile, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, and Mongolia.

“CDNetworks offers true cloud acceleration for dynamic website content and cloud applications not just in G8 countries, but globally including the fastest growing internet populations in emerging markets,” said Jerry Miller, VP of Technology, CDNetworks.

“Prior to CDNetworks, our cloud instance of Drupal was experiencing fluctuating levels of availability and performance in China,” said Shawn Gordon, Director Global IT Operations and Technical Services, SEMI, San Jose, CA. “After CDNetworks Dynamic Web Acceleration, load times for Drupal decreased from minutes to milliseconds. We never could have folded China into our Drupal environment without CDNetworks.”

Content delivery technologies designed to improve internet performance – including caching and intelligent routing – do not adequately address the performance requirements of dynamic cloud applications. Dynamic content is non-cacheable, highly personalized, and time‐sensitive. A dynamic web acceleration solution speeds the delivery of cloud applications by optimizing the way the server interacts with the network. CDNetworks Global Cloud Acceleration transparently reduces response time while increasing application availability.

As a PCI (Payment Card Industry Security Standards) level 1 certified service, CDNetworks:

  • Transforms the internet into a secure, high performing application delivery network
  • Optimizes the delivery path of content through public or privately managed networks
  • Accelerates dynamic cloud applications, such as Sharepoint, Drupal, by optimizing the “middle mile”
  • Mitigates the effects of chattiness with inefficient applications

CDNetworks' strategically deployed network equalizes performance and coverage in all areas of the world, and is especially effective at dramatically improving the performance of web-based applications delivered in emerging markets, including Asia, the Middle East, Russia and South America, which also have the fastest growing base of internet users. CDNetworks is the only content delivery network that provides true dynamic cloud acceleration to all four regions and local expertise to navigate content rules and regulations in Russia and China.
